12:49am
this is a beautiful place we have in this building. it is apropos that cedal, the commission and the friends have this event here. it's one of the most beautiful rooms this city has to offer. it is reflective of the tribute that we pay for all the honorees. but as i just wanted to address you today, i wanted to thank everyone here in this room for coming together on this event every year to honor those in different walks of life that are contributing to improving our chances of being full equality for women. we still have a ways to go. there is so much to do but we have accomplished quite a bit. i know former mayor brown, who is not here yet, but he will be dashing in, let him know i said this. if he were the president of the united states we would
12:50am
be the 186th country it ratify cdal i say that because i know he and his history was the very first to sign up our city, it pass the ordinance when he was the mayor, to make sure we were on the road by abiding by those principles and then when i had a chance as director of public works i took up the helm for that department. you know, those years, they were really blue collar attitudes in public works, but we found the women leaders that we could acknowledge and promote and it became an even better agency for that very reason. so i want to again acknowledge that history. we still have a lot to do since our country has yet to ratify these principles. i hope that we will get closer and closer to do that or if not do it now, it is something that
12:51am
i think we've really been embarrassed about as a country not to do this on a national level. but i join you today in acknowledging as well the great work that we have locally. i know that not only do we want to be models for the rest of the country but we also are working very hard at home and we produced some tremendous results. just 10 years ago, you would have seen statistics that we were quite concerned about. some 10 domestic violence homicides each year just 10 years ago that was happening. due to the fact that our commission on the status of women and thank you for your great leadership, emily and julie for the presidency this year and the friends, 10 years later we have reduced that by 80 percent in this city. it's a wonderful, wonderful tribute.
12:52am
we've done this with a great unity between the board and the mayor's office and i want to thank and recognize all the supervisors that are here. i saw scott wiener and the short guy in the elevator. supervisor cohen, i saw her a few minutes ago, thank you for being here. if i missed the other supervisors, my apologies, i know many of them are on their way and coming. i have striven to work really hard with our supervisors to make sure that we agree as much as we can on things that are important and certainly the agenda for the commission on the status of women, the fact they can hand out some $3 million dollars in grants every year to community-based organizations to keep that work up, to keep the issues in front of us, to make sure we never accept not even one domestic violence case in this case, is
12:53am
something that we would be willing to accept. and i'm sure you agree with that. (applause). just an hour ago i swore in the new, the newest department head of our city, jennifer johnston, who is now the executive officer for the civil service commission. she joins in a line for some fantastic women leaders of our city. they include naomi kelly, our city administrator, thank you for being here. i haven't seen her yet but i know joe an hayes white, vickky hennesy, our interim sheriff. >> doing a great job, too, vicky
12:54am

12:55am
including our diega skoepb is here as well, other elected officials, i know we have an official from the justice department, thank you for being here and other elected officials join me in acknowledging. i know diego gascon has another reason for being here. brenda yee, chinese hospital, we just broke ground on chinese hospital, thank you for your leadership and all the health field. christine bronstein, band of wives, thank you for your wonderful leadership, wonderful acknowledgement today. delloyd, our corporate partner, a hundred years in san francisco, thank you for your
12:56am
wonderful leadership. esther solar, where would we be without you? thank you. futures without violence, thank you very much, esther. fabiola kronsky, thank you for your work on univision, thank you for your constant encouragement and we hope you stay in san francisco. janet riley, clinic by the bay, your wonderful work in our community, thank you very much, janet. dr. jean bolen, a millionth circle, thank you and congratulations. very much for being here. and misha, thank you charles schwab and misha, thank you very much for your leadership. waley dye, you show up on
12:57am
these tech companies, i'm the only woman here, thank you for your leadership in technology and helping us lead this whole bay area to a wonderful success, thank you and congratulations. of course if willie brown isn't here today i'm going to continue thanking the honorable willie brown for his wonderful leadership. as you know he and i continue to be partners in crime but he often says keep treating the board of supervisors like your misstresses. i keep telling him, not ever having had a mistres, i don't know what that means. he means in a very playful way. you can remind him about that. anyway, it's again my honor to be here today to welcome all of you to acknowledge the wonderful work that you all do
12:58am
and of course to give my support to the commission on the status of women. emily, you and the commission have done wonderful work. keep doing that job, keep reminding us what we have to do, keep the agenda in front of us and keep educating our public. you know, our public sometimes in the enjoyment of success and our city is becoming more and more successful, we sometimes might have those moments that we forget how we got here. one of the things i just want to make sure you know, we would not be a successful city if we did not invest in our community-based organizations. that's the real secret in how we've been becoming successful in making sure we increase the numbers of women that are served or end the violent homicides or reduce the number of domestic violence cases or increase the number of women that serve on our commissions and our departments. it's working in the community
12:59am
constantly having that as our forefront, building strong communities. again, thank you very much and congratulations to all the honorees. thank you very much. (applause).
